  1. Heat Dutch oven with sesame oil (portion for the stock) over medium-high heat. Add onions and carrots and saute until golden brown, ~2 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant, ~1 minute. Add shiitakes, stock, miso, and ponzu. Reduce heat to a low-medium and simmer broth while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

  2. Bring a small saucepan of water to a low boil. Add eggs to boiling water and boil for exactly 7 minutes (this will yield cooked whites and runny yolks, so boil a minute less or more if you like your eggs cooked differently). Transfer eggs to a colander and run under cool tap water. Set aside until cool enough to peel.

  3. Add noodles and coleslaw mix to simmering broth and cook until noodles are tender, 4 to 6 minutes.

  4. Heat a skillet with sesame oil (portion for the ramen) over medium heat. To heated oil, add snap peas and a pinch of salt. Saute until peas turn bright green and are warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes (be careful not to overcook or they will lose their crunch). Transfer peas to a serving bowl.

  5. When noodles are finished cooking, taste broth and season with additional miso, ponzu, or a bit of hot sauce if you like spice. (Don't skip this final seasoning step because there is variation in the flavor and sodium content of stock.)

  6. Peel eggs (hold the eggs under cool running water to help remove the peel if needed) and slice in half. Season yolks with a pinch of salt.

  7. Ladle noodles, coleslaw mix, and broth into serving bowls. Top each bowl with snap peas, eggs, and green onions. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over the finished dish. Enjoy!
